Snatches of conversation (some in Chinese), church bells, the familiar chug of black cabs, fountains – they’re all here in a special ‘slow podcasting’ walk from Chinatown to Trafalgar Square. Join Adrian in real time through these different audio corridors and feel you’re really there!
Listen responsibly, preferably on decent stereo headphones… 🙂
Please rate this podcast on iTunes and recommend to friends and family – thanks!
As we step into 2018, a listen back to some of the best bits of the London Podcast from 2017. From smartphones that know how you feel to Mr & Mrs Pepys reborn, and from your worst worries on the Shoreditch stage to spoof rocker Norman Castle with a guest appearance from Kim Cattrall.
All linked by Adrian Lacey and put into context with some updates.
Alice Finbow is an east London-based visual artist, photographer and teacher. Hear her talk about her art, her dyslexia and how she studied at Chelsea School of Art.
Producer/presenter Adrian Lacey and Alice base themselves in Alice’s kitchen, and there’s also a walkabout in the surrounding area of Clapton in the Borough of Hackney. See some of Alice’s work on Adrian’s Instagram account: lacey.adrian
Star violinist, west Londoner Jane Gordon speaks exclusively here to Adrian Lacey with a story to tug at, erm, your heartstrings..!
Imagine realising you’ve left your most treasured possession on the train. That happened to Jane recently when she left the station accidentally without her instrument. She picks up the nerve-racking and heartwarming story here while clutching this 300-year-old work of art.
Jane also talks about her upcoming Proms concert in London, plucks a few strings, then you can hear her in an excerpt of a beautiful recording with the celebrated Rautio Piano Trio, of which she is a member.
